technical staff can attend all technical sessions. The User Group
meetings are open to all attendees.

     * Open access and strategic context (social and technical) for repositories
     * Value-  added services to enhance particular repositories
     * Achieving interoperability for repositories
     * Repositories and IT infrastructure
     * Open source software
     * Digital preservation
     * Use cases for repositories
     * Modeling for digital objects and repositories
     * Management and policy issues
